Cherry Mobile has announced that a new tablet is joining it line-up, the Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt with a suggested retail price of Php3,999. And my first reaction here is there must be some kind of mistake.
The Fusion Bolt is a 7-inch Android tablet which has a IPS HD (800 x 1280) display, a quad core 1 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. The quad-core processor is a Actions ATM7029 with Vivante GC1000 graphics processing unit. I have no prior experience with this chipset, so I would not want to venture a guess on how fast it is.
The Android operating system installed is version 4.1.1 JellyBean. The battery is a 4000 mAh unit. Internal storage is 8 GB, which is expandable via a microSD card slot. You also get a mini HDMI port which supports 1080p output.The Fusion Bold comes with two cameras, a 2 MP primary camera and VGA front camera. While no 3G model is offered, you can plug it to a 3G dongle
Yes, this is priced a Php3,999. There must be a catch somewhere...
Oh yes, don't get Bluetooth and GPS.
The Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt is not yet available in the market, but it will apparently be out next month. At Php3,999 expect long lines of people waiting to get one.
